Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Alberta Division

The Canadian Mental Health Association is one of the oldest volunteer organizations in Canada. We believe in social justice, individual and collective responsibility, self-determination, maximum community integration and access to appropriate and adequate resources and supports that will enable individuals, groups and communities to increase control over and enhance their mental health. 

The Alberta Division of the Canadian Mental Health Association serves to link the Regional offices in Alberta with the National office, operating at arm's length while maintaining some overall responsibilities to ensure good governance and alliance with CMHA values. The Division office provides leadership in provincial relations, policy direction, advocacy and promotion of mental health, as well as some provincial administrative functions and supports for the Regional offices and their service delivery programs. 
The structure of CMHA allows sharing and cooperation on a nationwide basis while the "grass roots" emphasis enables the organization to be responsive to local and community needs. 

At the local level throughout Alberta the Organization sponsors direct services such as housing, suicide prevention training, community outreach, social-recreation, education, crisis intervention and advocacy and social support.
